I am originally from Minneapolis, MN and graduated from the Ross School of Business in May 2013 with a BBA degree. After undergrad I worked in the Logistics industry for two years at Coyote Logistics mainly focusing on Strategy & Operations for one of our largest customers - Anheuser-Busch. After Coyote I worked for both a startup and a more established firm, Arrow Systems Integration, to focus on bringing new technology communication solutions to enterprise level customers. I now have worked at Google for almost eight years, consulting with SMBs to help them grow their digital advertising investment and presence to ultimately achieve their business goals. Most recently I worked in Strategy & Operations, where I improved our Google Ads go-to-market strategy, by optimizing our seller learning & development programs (onboarding, tenured sellers, managers, etc). I decided to pursue an MBA, and a Ross MBA in particular, to complement my Sales and Marketing skill set. I specifically wanted to become more well rounded in Finance and Accounting, so I can become a Google VP and/or confidently start my own company. The network I am developing at Ross, along with the incredible curriculum and focus on social change, will allow me to pursue my own endeavors and make this world a better place for everybody. I am thrilled to be an active part of the Ross community once again and I am happy to speak with any prospective student to discuss the benefits of pursuing a Ross MBA.
